It felt really good being slightly more forward, less conscious mental work requried to be forward and I felt more balanced, just lots of under arch pain when standing or on the Tbar, skiing I don't recall the pain but likely only because I was pre-occupied with skiing.
There are many things to consider here. The forward lean is just one of them. IMO (and i am sure the others would agree with me) they must ALL work in perfect harmony. If this happens, the skier will be balanced. Other things to consider are: boot ramp, binding ramp, skier technique, tib/fib shape. If you change one of them, this would affect the others (for the better or for the worse).
I do not know if what you did was good or not, but it seems to me you are now more forward. This can be a good thing or a bad one. I remember Jeff Bergeron saying that the Lange production boots have a lot of forward lean, even more than the Tecnicas. This was a surprise for me.
If what you did to your boots was good, this however only solved the fit problem. It also affected your stance. If i were in your place i would try to change the other components to obtain a balanced stance. Play with the toe and heel lugs and see if this helps you or not. Another thing you can do is add/remove binding lifters. Play with them too. I played a lot with the binding lifters with my Tecncia Diablos and it does make a visible difference.
IMO if you solved the fit problems (and it seems you solved it) all you have to do is play with the toe and heel lugs as well as the binding lifters to have a balanced stance.
